Bitfields, yet again...

Well, there was one limit on bitfields that I was not aware of that has
helped me decide about changing to bitfields.  They can not cross 
integer boundaries!  That is, I can only have 32 fields in any bitfield
structure.  I thought it was unlimited, which would have been the
overwhelming reason to switch to them.  I guess I'll stick with bitvectors.
Too bad, though, that could've been an excellent feature of bitfields.

Thanks to all those who responded.
